94 points, James Suckling
A rich and dense red with dried cherry, chocolate and hazelnut aromas and flavors. Full body, round and velvety tannins and a flavorful finish. Wonderful future here.

Wine maker notes
The Cerequio vineyard’s soil composition and especially mild climate are qualities that make it one of the most prestigious crus of the Langhe. Rigorously selected grapes for this auspicious bottling come from an area called the “balcony of the Langhe,” situated at 1,200 feet in elevation within the La Morra commune. With tortonian calcareous Sant’Agata marl, the soils have a bluish color due to the high content of magnesium and manganese. In the cellar, high-temperature fermentation on the skins is followed by aging in 700-liter oak tonneaux and then in bottle before release.

A deep garnet with brilliant highlights, the wine shows ample black currant, apricot, cherry, mint and spice on the nose. The aromas are confirmed on the palate in a rich, full body with healthy tannins and a lingering finish.

Match this wine with beef, buffalo, boar and venison dishes, rich stews and aged Parmesan.

Food pairing
CONSUMPTION PERIOD: it reaches its peak after 5-6 years and ages well for up to at least 20 years SERVING TEMPERATURE: 17°-18°C ACCOMPANIMENTS: important dishes of red meat and game, excellent with ripe, hard cheese
